Drug Rehab Minnesota (cont..)
Nearly 14,000 admittances to Minnesota drug rehab programs from 2003 to 2005 were for the abuse of cocaine. The largest part of the cocaine in Minnesota is supplied by criminal organizations based in California, Chicago and Detroit. Some cocaine comes from the Southwest Border States as well. Street gangs control the sale of cocaine within the state. Crack cocaine is also available in major metropolitan areas. 17.7 kilos of cocaine were seized in the state in 2006.
Admissions to Minnesota drug rehabs steadily increased from 2003 to 2005; 1,056 in 2003, 1,216 in 2004 and 1,426 in 2005. Heroin has not been a major concern for the state, but there is evidence to support the belief that the heroin abuse is growing, particularly in metropolitan areas. Heroin is supplied to dealers in the state by drug trafficking organizations from Nigeria/West Africa based in Chicago, street gangs with contacts in Chicago, and Mexican drug trafficking organizations based in the Southwest region of the country. The sale of heroin is controlled chiefly by Hispanic and African American street gangs. 200 grams of heroin were confiscated in Minnesota in 2006.

From 2003 to 2005 admissions to Minnesota drug rehab centers for treatment of methamphetamine/ amphetamine abuse increased steadily each year. The majority of methamphetamine found in Minnesota comes from Mexican drug trafficking organizations centered in California or Washington State. The illicit drug is smuggled into Minnesota by various parcel services including the US Postal Service and by messenger. On a smaller scale, methamphetamine is also manufactured in the state in small meth-lab operations. From 2002 to 2006, there were 757 meth-lab incidents in the state. 21.6 kilos of methamphetamine were impounded by federal authorities in 2006.
Over 25,000 individuals entered Minnesota drug rehabs for marijuana abuse from 2003-2005. As in so many other parts of the country, marijuana is the most accessible and most abused illicit drug in the state. Mexican drug trafficking organizations are responsible for smuggling large shipments of marijuana into the state. Marijuana is also locally grown in Minnesota. Nearly 266 kilos of marijuana were confiscated in Minnesota in 2006.

Approximately 7,700 individuals were admitted to Minnesota drug rehab programs from 2003 to 2005 for the abuse of prescription, club or other drugs. The non-medical use of OxyContin, Nubain, Dilaudid, Ritalin, and Vicodin is a common concern in Minnesota. Nubain is a narcotic that some individuals incorrectly believe causes effects similar to those caused by steroids and, when used in combination with some other drugs, is believed to have contributed to recent deaths in the Minneapolis area. Unscrupulous healthcare professionals dispense pharmaceuticals illegally and organized rings practice doctor shopping to account for a portion of the supply of illegally obtained prescription drugs in Minnesota. Ecstasy, Ketamine, GHB, LSD and PCP are some of the drugs classified as club drugs that are found in Minnesota. 108,099 dosage units of ecstasy were seized by federal law enforcement in 2006.
